32 Ford 2dr sedan body weight ?

Anyone have an idea of the body weight of an original all steel 32 Ford 2dr sedan (body only - no fenders or running boards)? Having trouble obtaining enough manpower and just wondering of I can hoist it from my 2X10 trusses.

Thanks

I had found and read that thread before. I was concerned that the steel on the 32 was a much heavier gauge than what was discussed. I take it from your reply that this formula will still put me in the ball park.

Thanks again

I did a 32 Ford sedan ... with the doors off ... It is about the same as my 3W ... weight wise ... for the sedan ... I was alone so ... I used a engine lift ... I had a 2X6 run thru the front where the doors go ...
I had a pair of Saw horses ... on each side and I ran a 2 X 6 under the body ...

Went to the rear and repeated the procedure ...

Then rolled the chassis out ... then sat it down on my body dolly ...



I have a wooden rolling body dolly ... that I built to keep the 32's on when I am doing them ...



So far ... 2 Roadsters, 1 5W coupe, 1 3W coupe and 2 sedans ...
